HUnit is not part of GHC, and can be installed and upgraded separately.
For convenience, some binary distributions, installers and the extralibs
tarball do include it. They just use the latest version in the darcs
repositories at the time that they are built, so if it is fixed in the
HUnit repo before 6.8.2 is built then the fix will be in the bindists
The HUnit cabal file lists Dean Herington as the author, but without
giving an e-mail address for him.
